His name is Omran. The image of him, bloodied and covered with dust, sitting silently in an ambulance awaiting help, is another stark reminder of the toll of the war in #Syria.
He is young – one witness puts him at four, perhaps five years old, but his chubby arms and legs and the way he clings to the man who pulled him from the rubble of his bombed-out home suggest he is still a toddler.
#Aleppo, in northern Syria, has been besieged for years during that country’s civil war. Thousands of people have been killed there, and many lives have been upturned.
Omran’s family are among them.
Sometimes a video is worth a thousand words. This haunting, heartbreaking imagery of a young Syrian boy is a vivid reminder of the horrors of war.
